I am a Christian, but nobody told me I wasn't

The video that went viral this week, "I'm Christian, But I'm Not," released by BuzzFeed highlighted an important topic for Christians to acknowledge.


The people in this video are clearly not Christian despite their claims otherwise. How do we know this? Because what they are saying clearly contradicts what is the in the Bible. This is where the controversy starts.

Christianity has become more about "love" than about Jesus Christ. However, it is impossible to have Christianity without Christ. It is also impossible to have Christianity without obeying Christ.
And by this we know that we came to know him, if we keep His commandments. Whoever says, "I know him" but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him, but whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected. By this we may be sure that we are in Him (1 John 2:3-5).
The people in this video don't seem to have any concern for obeying Christ, but that is probably because Christianity has tried to downplay the expectations that God has for us. If there is no obedience to God's Word, even though they may have said the "sinners" prayer, they are not Christians. Many Christians downplay these verses because they know people who are living in sin and yet claim to "know him," and they don't want to admit that they may not know Him.

This kind of thinking has been disastrous for Christianity and is leading many people astray. If Christians can't acknowledge the truth, than why should we expect the world to acknowledge the truth.
